The female example shows the lady gesturing to the lizard below. Both pieces have Diamond registration marks. One piece has an impressed Royal Worcester mark. Both are marked Phillips and Pearce Bond Street for the establishment where they would be sold. An exceptionally rare pair which you won't find on any other web site.
